At Bentley Wood, we believe that engagements with the arts and humanities is essential to support their personal development and expand a student’s understanding of human cultural over time. as well as supporting a broad and balance curriculum experience. We are proud of our Arts and Humanities Strategy which further ensures all students retain a broad and balance curriculum and engage with a range of experiences in the arts and humanities as they progress through the school. We believe that engagement with the arts and humanities supports students to achieve their best across their other curriculum subjects.
Students will also benefit beyond school life as through arts and humanities-based education and exposure, they will gain access to wider opportunities that will help them to become more cultured, empathetic and creative individuals.
All students study all arts and humanities-based subjects at Key Stage 3, all students continue to study a humanity and creative subject at GCSE.
Aim of the Strategy:
